Gems 6.4

“The best remedy for those who are frightened, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere they can be alone, alone with the sky, nature and God. For then and only then can you feel that everything is as it should be and that God wants people to be happy amid nature’s beauty and simplicity.

As long as this exists, and that should be forever, I know that there will be solace for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances. I firmly believe that nature can bring comfort to all who suffer.” -Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Gems 6.5

“There is such solace in the mere sight of water. It clothes us delicately in its blowing salt and scent, gossamer items that medicate the poor soul.” ―Sebastian Barry, On Canaan’s Side

Gems 6.6

“Pretty much any time I got a chance to do something cool, I tried to grab for it, and that’s where my solace comes from.” -Randy Pausch

Gems 6.7

“The true way to soften one’s troubles is to solace those of others.”
-Madame De Maintenon

Gems 6.8

“Writing is the supreme solace.” -W. Somerset Maugham
